As a Present Unwrapper you use your energy to live in the moment.
A Present Unwrapper shapes his life knowing:
”Be aware, what I need is right here right now!”
A Present Unwrapper particularly loves to seriously play with awareness.
The Present Unwrapper is practising the use of his awareness ever since you were born.
Every day, he practises looking clearly at every moment he experiences: what is really there? In myself.... in others... in my environment?
If anything seems wrapped up in something to hide the real content.... he enjoys ripping of the paper, to see what is really inside the present.
He knows that, whatever is in the present, is something Good.
The present always contains a Good Thing: something to enjoy right away as it presents itself, or something to enjoy as a learning experience or something to pass on, for someone else to enjoy.
The Present Unwrapper has a passion for receiving and unwrapping gifts. For he knows that whatever he needs is available in the present, even if it may need some effort to get through the packing.
He finds it a joy to challenge his abilities to be aware of the gifts at any given moment to be aware of how each gift fits his needs, for himself and/or to share with others. His excitement and need to share the beautiful content is often vocalised:” Look what I have found!”
Being a Present Unwrapper is fun. Being a Present Unwrapper is instantly rewarding. Being a Present Unwrapper is his life.
You can be a Present Unwrapper
The fact that the Present Unwrapper is practising unwrapping presents ever since you were born is no coincidence. It’s because it’s a metaphor for YOU.
You have this beautiful body, mind and soul to receive wherever it is you need.
If you find life amazingly beautiful, full of opportunities and rewarding and you feel happy and confident about what each moments brings you, you are probably a Present Unwrapper .
But maybe you feel that you are empty handed in your life? Do you feel life is presenting you with more hardship than things to enjoy right away.. and you wish it would be different?
If the latter is the case and you feel attracted to being a Present Unwrapper , then ask yourself this:“ Am I living in the moment? Am I aware of all the presents find on my path and just need to unwrap to enjoy the content? “
If that is not yet the case...
Do you feel, in this very moment reading these lines, restless movements in your diaphragm?
Could it be that the Present Unwrapper in you is , right as we speak, tearing off large pieces of gift paper, picking loose sticky pieces of tape of the treasure that is the real YOU whilst shouting out loud:” LOOK, what I have found!”
Do you feel he’s eager to share all his knowledge and abilities to unwrap presents so you can clearly see all the Good Things in your life freely and happily?
You can enjoy the Good Things in your life! All it takes is being aware of the gifts that are handed to you as a present.
Are you worried:” I hate surprises! If I don’t know what is in a parcel. I don’t want to open it!” or “ I have not time to live in the moment... I have experienced ( in the past) that I have to focus on my future!”
Or are you slightly exited and curious:” Do you really think that my future is safe if I live in the moment , unwrapping the never ending stream of presents in ‘ the present’?”
If a part of you is indeed curious and you want to look into it some more... take a deep breath, say cheerfully :” Look what I have found!” and you are making your first step as a Present Unwrapper , in a conscious Energetic Sound Transaction.
It may feel wobbly at first, but you can rest at any time you like. If you practise every day with unwrapping the amount of presents you like to unwrap, you will increase your awareness of all the things you just have to touch and open, to see what Good Thing it holds, in any moment.
The beautiful content of presents will see the light of day as you unwrap them. You sharing it enthusiastically with others :” Look what I’ve found!” is a gift to others, an invitation to be a Present Unwrapper too!
Being a Present Unwrapper , making Energetic Sound Transactions, pays off in joy and happiness, whatever gift box you decide to open.
Would you like to play with the tools a Present Unwrapper uses, every day?
The tools a Present Unwrapper enjoys to play with:
The Present Unwrapper has a preference to use every day the tool of ‘ awareness’ .
According to the Present Unwrapper : “Be aware, what I need is right here right now!”
He knows that all it takes is to really connect with what catches his attention and look into it, if it is wrapped. In knowing that there is no present like the present... the Present Unwrapper looks at all his presents with two approaches:
awareness suggestion 1: Remarkable! Find the message
The Present Unwrapper is actively on the lookout for what is remarkable in his everyday life.
A special gift is usually wrapped in paper that also gives extra ‘ cachet’ .. to make it look extra attractive and standing out from the ‘ ordinay’.
The Present Unwrapper finds it fun to think that the Universe is delivering special packages to him and in order to find and unwrap them ... he needs to be aware of the remarkable things occurring in his life.
Sometimes the Universe does its special deliveries in a way that is hard to miss, in a mind blowing surprising way: fall in love, get a wonderful job offered, a smashing sunset......
But once you have become a Present Unwrapper, the Universe loves to give you all kinds of answers to questions you might haves and other tailor made gifts.
Be aware of what is remarkable in your life, on the small scale just as well as on a large scale.
Do you always see somebody on Tuesday and now on a Saturday? He, that’s remarkable! Reason for the Present Unwrapper to think:” Hmmm, interesting.... there may be something in this for me, what could it be?”
Can you always drive in 20 minutes to the nearest big town? Today it takes you 40 minutes, because of tractors on the road or road work?
Rather than winding himself up about the ‘ delay’, the Present Unwrapper amuses himself with wondering what may be the gift in this remarkable event.
Is he meeting somebody who reminds him remarkably (!) of somebody he knew? He listens extra carefully to what this person brings as a message.
Is a foreign band suddenly playing a song in his native tongue.... remarkable! Special delivery! Of course he can enjoy the song as it is.. but maybe it is just the wrapping. What is the song about? Could that hold a message for him?
The Present Unwrapper smiles a lot, whilst Unwrapping the remarkable presents.
He likes the way the Universe wraps the special surprises, match his humour and matching his desires for good presents.
In all honesty... the Present Unwrapper is careful in talking about his way of being extra aware for remarkable events.
When people think that it is not OK to assume that the/a present is there for you to enjoy as a gift from life itself, he may find himself in conversations about’ being the centre of the Universe’ .
He looks at it this way. Nobody is surprised that messages for you get delivered in your mailbox, wrapped in an envelope, for you to open, every day. Does opening up your mailbox mean that you expect that others don’t get mail? That you are unique in getting messages?
Of course not.
Do you feel that if the Universe has indeed a special message for you it can post something to your mailbox, where you will sure read it, rather than through ‘ remarkable presents’ ?
Then start paying a closer attention to your mail. Is there anything remarkable to the stamps, messages on the envelops, pictures on postcards.....?
Just smile when there is.
Just smile when there isn’t.
If nothing else... the Present Unwrapper has great fun with ordinary life, seeing the remarkable aspects of it.
Say:” life is remarkable”
Mean:” life is remarkable”
Do:” See the remarkable things of life”
awareness suggestion 2: Talk to the signal
When the Present Unwrapper uses the tool of awareness of remarkable things, it is usually on events in his world.
However, he is also very aware that in his inner world, he gets many presents. These are signals. Remarkable signals, in a way, standing out from other sensations in order to be picked up by him.
Special deliveries from his inner system to his consciousness, to indicated to make a change.
For example... after a period of feeling happy, joyful and at ease, minding his own business..... all of a sudden there is this remarkably strong signal of ‘ I am hungry’ .
Of course he can chose to let this gift sit for a while. But the Present Unwrapper knows that if he gets this signal, he may want to look into finding something to eat.
When he does that.. after a period of enjoying his eating his food... there is this remarkable signal of ‘ That is enough, thank you’ .
Of course he can chose to eat some more and discard the present he got handed. But The Present Unwrapper likes his nice gifts and if he sees the beauty of this advice to stop eating now.... he will enjoy feeling satisfied, having had enough... not overdosing.... precisely enough.
He enjoys the variety of signals he gets: to take a rest, to be active, to eat, to drink, to warm up, to cool off, to adjust something emotionally, to let it go......
This awareness suggestion is called ‘ talk to the signal’ rather than just ‘ act upon it’ .
The Present Unwrapper is always aware that the signal is not the whole gift.... it is the wrapping paper!
So yes, the more of these gifts he has carefully and consciously unwrapped, the better he understands what is ‘ in it’ . But still, he chooses to Unwrap them with his conscious attention.
“What is this signal telling me?”
“ I am right in assuming that it indicates......?”
“ OK, I am feeling hungry.. what do I fancy?”
In talking to the signal and really listening to the messages you get, from your body and your conscious mind, you will see that it gives much more information than ‘ just the signal’.
An other example.
The Present Unwrapper had overstepped his boundaries in work and felt mentally and physically tired.
He acknowledged that gift, but assumed quickly that having a rest on the bed would re-energize him.
But he didn’t feel much improvement.
Then he remembered that he hadn’t unwrapped the signal of ‘ tiredness’ and he asked it:” OK, I feel tired and I want to re-energize.. how can it be done?”
He suddenly felt a desire to make music.. But.. rather than unwrapping that present.. he put it to the side, thinking:” I am far too tired to pick up my instrument!”
But, knowing the power of paying attention to remarkable messages.. he gave it a go.
Only ten minutes later, he smiled.
Not only was he re-energized, as wished for, but he also knew why it had worked!
In overstepping his boundaries to work to long on a mentally challenging task in a physical uncomfortable position... he body and mind had been ‘ flooded’ with input. The tension of that wasn’t able to flow away in ‘ laying flat on his back’. The task was still too present in his system.
Replacing it by another task, that required using his body and mind in a different, less tense but still flowing way, enabled his body and mind to unwind. The tension couldn’t go anywhere in doing completely nothing!
What a wonderful present!
He enjoyed making the music and he enjoyed feeling re-energised for other activities. All he had to do was talk to the signal ( open the present) and use it.
